My dad is suffering from accelerated chronic myeloid leukemia. It pains me to see him lose so much weight, going for blood transfusions 2x weekly, has a poor appetite and is very weak now. He is the same dad who taught me how to swim when I was a kid and paid my university fees so that I could focus on just my studies and did not have to work part-time. He needs some funds to hire a chaperone to accompany him on his 2x weekly hospital visits as I have to work and also care for my young children. He also needs sponsors for the leukemia drug Imatinib. The drug is so expensive that the public hospitals just don't prescribe it. Any pharmaceutical companies who are willing to sponsor Imatinib or university research teams who need volunteer patients for Imatinib studies are most welcome. Pl. help my dad and share this with everyone... thanks from the bottom of my heart.
